Briefly talking with USA Today Chris Hemsworth, the actor portraying the mighty Thor, Kenneth Branagh, the man bringing the Norse God to the big screen, and Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, discus Comic-Con and more.
“I think they were warning me,” says Branagh, known more for his adaptations of Shakespeare than superhero stories. “They said to brace myself, that I’d never seen anything like it.”
“Nobody believed in us when we brought Iron Man here,” says Marvel chief Kevin Feige. “They said we were bringing our B-team in. I think we’ve proved that there’s no such thing. If you can impress Comic-Con fans, you’re in the big leagues.”
“It’s a bit scary, the power and devotion they have,” says Chris Hemsworth, who plays the titular Norse hero in the film scheduled to arrive in May. “A couple of months ago I was feeling secure and went online to see what people were saying. Some people loved we were doing a movie; some people already hated it. I’ll never read comments again.”
In addition this brief talk, USA Today has provided a new photo from the highly anticipated film, (pictured right). As you can see, the photo shows an anxious Chris Hemsworth (THOR) attempting to retrieve mjolnir, the legendary hammer of the God. You can get the full size HERE
